So THIS Is Fitness | Health, Fitness, Running & Weight Loss

Health, fitness, running, weight loss... it doesn't have to be hard! Take it from a guy who's been there and "gets it" - your host, Darrell McTague. Having lost 130 lbs and finished ULTRAmarathons, he's learned it all the hard way so you don't have to.

We tend to low-ball ourselves.

We generally have a tendency to believe we are less capable than we really are. We routinely underrate our true potential, and assume we can only go so high up on the achievement ladder. We see the accomplishments of others and rank ourselves against them... assuming that if THAT'S where THEY can get... we must be somewhere down just a little bit below them. 

We need to believe we can rise above mediocrity.

We are capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for. IF we can just STOP stopping ourselves and reach a little higher... it'd turn everything upside down. THAT... is exactly what happened to Maggie Guterl. One day, she decided to "get serious", talked to a coach... and guess what her coach told her? That she could achieve something amazing. And she pushed Maggie to it. And she did it. We can all take a lesson from what Maggie has to tell us, whether we work with a coach or not. Join me for the conversation.
